Vashtie, a modern renaissance woman also known as Downtown's Sweetheart, is a director, designer, model, creative consultant and DJ. At The REFRESH 1-Year Anniversary x DJ for a Cure (Show #53), she was wearing her DJ hat. Her special guest set for the packed Monday afterwork room at The REFRESH was a mix of 90s hip-hop and R&B blended in with today's vibes and sounds. Vashtie is also the co-founder of the 1992 party (a downtown staple since the late 00s, which for a while was at Santos Party House with Q-Tip) and is now weekly as part of House Party on Thursday nights at Webster Hall. As a director, she's helmed music videos for Justin Bieber, Joey Bada$$, Kendrick Lamar, Big K.R.I.T., Solange, Kid Cudi, Jadakiss and more. She's also worked in a variety of creative capacities with a number of brands.
